China Bans Ivory Trade. Good or Bad?

China is taking a stand and banning ivory trade by the end of 2017 which could end elephant poaching in Africa. Most see this as a great way to help and save the endangered elephants in Africa who are victims of poaching every day(100 killed a day by poachers). Banning ivory trade will just increase the prices of ivory which will just make poaching increase then, China will sell old ivory or go back to the old ways. Is this really a good idea?

If this works the next ban, rhino horn!

I think it will increase the demand for ivory which increases poaching... the black makert for ivory needs enforcement to really make it stop.

Good to hear, but without enforcement it's meaningless.

Every little bit helps. It will make it harder to sell and raise awareness. I sell online. If you list ivory it is flagged and taken down with a stiff warning and if you do it again they will boot your account. The bots recognise the word so we don't even use it to describe a color anymore. This includes vintage/antique ivory. The Chinese have a huge online presence and will not be able to dump it here either.

I thought of Rhino horn immediately too. And shark fins. Find something else to supposedly enhance ya manhood.

That's true, but the black market prices for ivory will increase. The black market needs serious enforcement of banning ivory. Not to mention, the west can reduce their part in the sell of ivory by stopping the demand. There won't be a supply needed if there is no demand.

Agreed on shark fin, but that's a really slow battle.
